Health Literacy: Plain Language

Did you know that the strongest predictor of health outcomes in the U.S. is health literacy level?

We were thrilled to have hosted this great training on Plain Language: Tips for Clear Written Materials presented by Health Literacy Media.

What we learned:

  • We learned and practice plain language writing techniques
  • We learned health literate communication strategies that help ensure patients understand what they need to do for their health
  • We learned some verbal communication best practices with a health literate focus
